In 2018, Bosnia and Herzegovina airports recorded 1,695,842 passengers, an increase of 8.8% compared to the previous year.
Of the four international airpots, three have recorded a growth in the number of passengers, while Mostar Airport has only had a decline.
Sarajevo Airport for the first time achieved more than a million passengers (exactly 1,046,635), which is an increase of 9.2% compared to the previous year.
Tuzla airport with a total of 584,589 passengers increased by 9.0%, while Banja Luka Airport with 36,180 passengers recorded a increase of 73.3% compared to the previous year. The Tuzla airport recorded a decrease in the number of passengers in the last three months of 2018, which is the result of Rayanair entering the Banja Luka airport.
In the aftermath of the nine months in which the Tuzla airport grew steadily, in October it fell by 2.7 percent compared to the same month last year, in November it fell by -17.8 percent and in December it dropped by 1.7 percent.
At Mostar Airport, the number of passengers in the last year decreased by 33.9%, and a total of 28,463 passengers were served.
Bosnia and Herzegovina is awaiting another year of civil aviation due to the newly founded company FlyBosnia, the Ryanair expansion to Banja Luka and the expansion of Wizz Air with another plane in Tuzla, which is expected to be added to the base of this company in Tuzla airport.
